    Default BT5R3 & ALFA AWUS036NEH(rt2800usb) - Help!

    Greetings!,

    System that I'm working with:
    Current VirtualBox on MacBookPro running 10.6OSX
    BT5R3 KDE 64bit
    USB Alfa AWUS036NEH

    1st started working with BT5R3 KDE and I got it working, but now airodump-ng does not work. I have fully installed all versions of BT5 and still airodump-ng is not working.

    For my final attempt, I reinstalled BT5R3 and did varies test.

    1) Out of the box - Simple plug and play - No Luck

    2)Enable b43 drivers - Proceed with the process to get enable this function - No Luck

    3)Compat Kernal - Installed the most recent update (2012-12-18) - No Luck

    4)apt-get update & apt-get upgrade - No Luck

    I have read numerous threads and and repeated all the steps steady in the threads, still getting the same results

    aireplay-ng -9 mon0 (aireplay-ng --test mon0) = No APs found

    airodump-ng mon0 = Nothing appears


    Also, I'm noticing that when I reboot the BT5 wlan0 appears in Managed mode when I reboot the system. But the way that resolve this by doing:
    ifconfig wlan0 down
    iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
    ifconfig wlan0 up

    I will appreciate any help if possible.

    Cheers

    You can try the rt3070sta driver from official site.

    I can tell you exactly what is wrong. Here's what you do type the following in terminal:

    Do this from a fresh install of backtrack:

    Code:
    rmmod rt2870sta
    Apt-get install gedit
    Gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    In gedit find and erase the line that says "blacklist rt2800usb" (if it exists)
    Then at the bottom add the following:
    Code:
    blacklist rt2870sta
    Now save blacklist.conf and close it. Back in terminal type:
    Code:
    modprobe rt2800usb
    Enjoy!

    Please post the module loaded by kernel. You can type lspci -v and look for your wifi device, at the end you will see the module used by kernel at the end..

    The driver to that ALFA AWUS036NEH has the chipset rt3070 which is supported by the rt2800usb driver, so if a different module was loaded, you need to change it and black list any other version of rt28xx.

    By the way, I do not see why loading the b43???? That is for broadcoms chipset.

    Luck.
